Thus, the displacement of A in a direction parallel to the x axis is u + (∂u/∂x)δx. The remaining components are found in an identical manner and are shown in Fig. 15. We now define direct strain in more quantitative terms. If a line element of length L at a point in a body suffers a change in length L then the longitudinal strain at that Fig. 15 Displacement of line elements OA, OB and OC. 17) in which squares and higher powers of ∂u/∂x are ignored. Substituting for O A in Eq. 18) It follows that εy = ∂y ⎪ ⎪ ⎪ ⎪ ∂w ⎪ ⎪ ⎭ εz = ∂z The shear strain at a point in a body is defined as the change in the angle between two mutually perpendicular lines at the point.

17), that O A = δx 1 + ∂u ∂x O C = δz 1 + ∂w ∂z Similarly But for small displacements the derivatives of u, v and w are small compared with l, so that, as we are concerned here with actual length rather than change in length, we may use the approximations O A ≈ δx O C ≈ δz Again to a first approximation (A C )2 = δz − ∂w δx ∂x 2 + δx − ∂u δz ∂z 2 Substituting for O A , O C and A C in Eq. 20) are derived on the assumption that the displacements involved are small. , the full, non-linear, large deflection equations, given in many books on elasticity, must be employed.

We now define direct strain in more quantitative terms. If a line element of length L at a point in a body suffers a change in length L then the longitudinal strain at that Fig. 15 Displacement of line elements OA, OB and OC. 17) in which squares and higher powers of ∂u/∂x are ignored.

Therefore, if the shear strain in the xz plane is γxz then the angle between the displaced line elements O A and O C in Fig.
